CAN WE BRIDGE THE DIVIDE?
“We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory…will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature.”
~ Abraham Lincoln, 1861
Please join us for an evening dinner & workshop bringing together 8 individuals from “red” America (typically voting for Republican over Democratic candidates, and mostly supportive of President Donald Trump and his Administration) and 8 individuals from “blue” America (typically voting for Democratic over Republican candidates, and mostly critical of President Trump and his Administration).
The workshop will consist of structured conversations.
- To better understand the experiences, feelings & beliefs of those on the other side of the political divide.
- To see if there are areas of commonality in addition to differences.
Organized by area residents Kate Larose & Shanna Ratner
